turn back toward the coast and it it will be strengthening when it makes that turn. we're anticipating rough surf and flooding from boston to the virginias and the carolinas. it's southeast of the city of philadelphia. it doesn't look like it will get out of here until tuesday morning, wednesday, and thursday, it starts to pull away south the canadian maritimes. it's the hook toward the left that we're concerned about, could bring about dangerous flooding especially sunday night into monday morning. what you're looking at are wave heights, we are expecting waves ten to 15 feet within the greenish yellow band off the shore sunday night. along with that band of wave activity comes the storm surge. pick are tur your normal -- pick

comes. these are the spaghetti plots, there's uncertainty in the exact track of the storm. obviously the closer it turns to the coast, the greater the impact it's going to be. farther a way, the less of the impact. this one is close to the coast, these models have it 100 miles east of what that model is suggesting. that 100-mile shift, until it makes that turn toward the east/northeast that's when we'll have a handle on scabbingly what's going -- owe exactly what's going to happen at the jersey shore. we are expecting flooding and beach erosion. it's a george towels day just

off the ocean and the winds. this morning's high tide you'll see flooding. it's partly because of the waivings buildings. in the last half-hour, farther up the coast, 9 feet. long beach island and atlantic city, 8-foot waves in rehoboth beach that's enough to create heavy surf and dangerous beach conditions. you're strongly encouraged to stay out of the ocean today. of course at high tide this morning, some moderate or coastal flooding, we have gusts at 20 miles per hour coming off the ocean. the gusts will pick up tonight and tomorrow. chris sowers is outside on the terrace with how today will play out and how tomorrow will change a little bit. >> reporter: right now it's very nice, comfortable, temperatures in the low 60s. some locations have dropped into

to the coastline. this is our dangerous flooding graphic. you see the circle of green and yellow that's working off the coastline with a 3 to 5-foot storm surge. as we get into this afternoon and tonight it gets closer to the jersey shore as the center of the storm makes the left hand, the problem is over the next 48 hours it's going to sit there and spin. that means each and every high tide from this point on is not going to have a chance to recede. each high tide gets higher and higher, and the flooding conditions get worse and worse. if you're parked in a flood-prone area more your car if you live in a flood-prone area seek higher ground and move away over the next couple of days, balls it can turn life threatening with the flooding that the national weather service have talking about. move cars to higher ground,
expect power outages, as the storm gets closer to the coast the winds will pick up. we'll see gusts up to 50 to 55 miles per hour. down the shore, sunny conditions right now, expect sun and clouds this afternoon, windy, 73. the city of philadelphia, 78 degrees, a very comfortable day look for a combination of sun and clouds. when i come back in just a few minutes i'll have more on hermine and i will have the accuweather seven-day forecast. nydia. >> "action news" reporter, annie mccormick and jennette reyes are live at the shore. jeanette how does it looking in the ocean city. >> reporter: it's gorgeous right now, but things won't get ugly until much, much later. as soon as you step out the door, it's chilly and breezy. be prepared for that. i want to give you a live look
